Without God’s mercy, mankind has no hope. “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”‭‭(Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬) “Grace is God’s unconditional love in action, embracing us in our imperfections and transforming us with His mercy.” (Unknown) Keith […]

It’s easy to become discouraged in this fallen world. We are inundated with news about crime, political corruption and attacks against the family and our faith. Our peace is found in Jesus. He has extended grace to us. The beauty He created gives us a small glimpse of what is in store for us. Remember […]

I’ve heard it said that nothing in life is of any value unless it is shared. I remember going to a beautiful place out west several years ago without my wife. Every sunset, every canyon and every stream caused me to think about Sharon. My thoughts were always, “I wish Sharon could see this.” My […]

The Kentucky Wildcat Baseball team have their backs against the wall. They must play Florida at 10:00 CST. If they win, they will play a talented Texas A&M team at 6:00 this evening.

It’s not about what we’ve done. It’s about who He is. God extends grace and forgiveness to those He loves…that’s you and me. “Our worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s […]

God cares more about your future than He does your past. “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.”(C.S. Lewis) “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give […]

I often pray for the peace of Christ. There are distractions, and even chaos, everywhere we turn. But God can give peace in the middle of life’s storms. We only need to enter in. “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”‭‭(Isaiah‬ ‭26‬:‭3‬) “The Christian needs to […]

Be mindful of others…their needs, struggles, pain, or loneliness. The gift of encouragement can go a long way in changing someone’s life for the better. “And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.”‭‭(1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭14‬) “I’ll lift you and […]
